One of the newest additions to Gramtik’s Lowtemp Music family, French electro hip-hop outfit The Geek x Vrv, have some serious heat coming out of their studio. Their latest release, “Say It” is a superb specimen of electronic hip-hop at its finest. The beat is deep, sultry and soulful. The samples are spot-on. And the vibe is undeniably chill. But really, would you expect anything less from a pair of Gramtik-approved gents like these? Beside this one, the tempos and vibes vary throughout their catalogue; some tunes are more upbeat and electronic, while others are smooth and soulful like this one. Honestly, these guys sound really similar to Gramtik’s earlier Street Bangerz days, so if you liked that, you will definitely appreciate this. Be sure to snag this free download while you explore the Geek x Vrv’s other work, including excellent remixes and mixtapes, most of which are available for free on their Soundcloud. I think it’s safe to say that we can expect great things from these two in the future. Enjoy!

Who needs some funk in their life? Well here’s your daily dose of saucy futuristic bass music to get your loins a-quivering. About a month ago, the trumpet-tooting beatsmith Russ Liquid unlashed a beast of album—a sexy beast, I might add—on Gramatik’s Lowtemp label. Driven by its varied percussion and synth work, the appropriately titled In Love combines a spot-on mix of sultry samples, hyper-detailed compositions, and smatterings of a hauntingly beautiful trumpet to create a musical gem that completely defies any notion of genre while incorporating elements from several of them. The deep, spacey sounds underlined by subtle bass meld together seamlessly and make this album sound like it could have been the soundtrack from a futuristic Seventies porno movie—and I mean that in the best way possible. If you’re looking for something to smoke to or just a bit of lovemaking music, grab this free download and thank the #digitalfreedom revolution. Enjoy!

Just FYI: You will have to download each track individually as there is no .zip to be found. Sorry!
